Hi,

I have a triple monitor setup using 1 monitor with a dvi adapter to a vga cable, the other with a vga cable and the last one using hdmi.

The three monitors are different sizes with the 2 on the side (AOC and SAMSUNG) having 1280x1024 and the Monitor in the middle being 1920x 1080 will this setup work using nvidia surrond or the Soft th.

from what I have read online im not to sure using the mismatching monitors will work and if they do im not sure if the GTX650 will handle all 3

Thanks Andrew

having different resolution is not the best for multiple screens, and with your card, it is going to struggle quite a but, as it only has 1GB Vram, which for three screens is is best for at least 3GB.

It will handle all three, but if you don't game and do heavy work, it'll work fine.

I've heard people say 2gb is around the lowest you need for average games, I guess over clocking my card isnt going to do to much, is upgrading to a 3gb card worth the money?
thanks

yes, but getting just a cheap 3GB card isn't going to cut it, it depends on the GPU itself in order to make a difference. Something like a R9 280X would be the best card for such a setup, if it'll work with your budget and current setup is another question.
